Yesterday I spent most of the day playing with fabric and it was quite delightful! I pulled and prepped (wash with color catchers, damp dry, iron with starch) all of my fabrics for several upcoming projects. First up is my Modern Trees QAL which starts next week.
I chose mostly Kona Solids with one Moda Bella Solids Aqua. I decided to go with a cream solid from Free Spirit as the background because I had several yards leftover after cutting out all the Turning Cartwheels kits. It’s a nice yellowy cream and looks great with the teals and greens.
Next up, I cut and marked all the squares for the Double Chevron quilt I’m making for my son. I was having quite a zen moment getting lost in the calm repetitiveness of this task.
Finally, I pulled fabric for Angela Pingel’s curved mini class that I’ll be taking at Sewing Summit this weekend. I chose an older Amy Butler print from my stash along with a coordinating solid. (Surprising that I didn’t go with all solids – I know!)
The solid will be my focal point with the print as background. It will be a modern take on a drunkard’s path block so I hope my fabric choices will work well.
I’m bringing all of these projects with me this weekend to Sewing Summit in the hopes of getting quite a bit done. I am way excited that there is lots of open sewing time during the retreat. If you are looking for me – I’ll be the one under a pile of fabric trees and HST’s!
